Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says recent happenings in the country show that Nigerians are not getting ready for the kingdom of God.
Speaking at the dedication of St. Moses Orimolade Holy Land, the tomb of the Cherubim and Seraphim church founder, the ex-president urged Nigerians to be steadfast in their faith.
“The situation we have in the country today does not show we are preparing for the kingdom of God but we have to be prepared. There is always a day of reckoning,” Obasanjo said on Saturday.
He went on to eulogise Orimolade, describing him as one of the greatest missionaries to have existed, and also prayed that the efforts of other church leaders in Nigeria who helped in spreading the gospel will not be in vain.
“Christianity was brought to us and many of our people made great contributions and they are unsung heroes now. Missionaries came but we have our own missionaries and leaders and Moses Orimolade was one of them,” he said.
“It is because of the church that you and I have the assurance of salvation. Our own church leaders who paid their own prize also helped in spreading the gospel and we pray their efforts are not in vain.”
